About Us

The Eugene Science Center was founded in 1961 as the southwest branch of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI). It was incorporated in 1977 as the Willamette Science & Technology Center (WISTEC), an independent 501(c)(3) corporation. The name “Science Factory” was adopted in 2002, and then changed to Eugene Science Center in 2018. We are the only science center in Lane and surrounding counties. 


Eugene Science Center strives to engage children, excite their curiosity, inspire them toward a lifelong love of learning about science, and empower them to use science and technology to improve their communities.
